Exposure to electromagnetic fields induces pathophysiological changes and oxidative stress in the cardiovascular system

  title={Exposure to electromagnetic fields induces pathophysiological changes and oxidative stress in the cardiovascular system},
  author={Azab Elsayed Azab and Shaban Ali Ebrahim},
This study aimed to highlight on the influence of exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) on the cardiovascular system in humans and experimental animals, from the recent articles regarding the cardiovascular effects of exposure to EMFs. EMFs might produce a variety of adverse in vivo effects such as heart problems, chest pain, and cardiovascular system disorders. Previous studies showed that an association between elevated magnetic field exposure and mortality of employer in electric utility… 

The Influence of Magnetic Fields on Selected Physiological Parameters of Blood and Tissues in Mice

The results revealed a significant increase in GABA levels in the brain, as well as decreases in haemoglobin, haematocrit, and red blood cell counts, after exposure to 20, 40, 60 and 80 Gauss MFs, which appeared to be related to the intensity of SMF exposure.

Until the effects of EMF on heart tissue are more fully explored, electronic devices generating EMFs should be approached with caution.

Influence of exposure to electromagnetic field on the cardiovascular system.

1-day exposure to ELF-EMF could suppress the increase in HR by affecting ventricular repolarization and may have a down-regulatory effect on responses of the cardiovascular system induced by sympathetic agonists.

Effect of low frequency Electromagnetic Field on cardiovascular system: An ultrastructural and immunohistochemical study

The aim of the present study is to investigate ultrastructural changes of heart and aorta in EMF-exposed rats for this purpose Wistar rats were exposed to 3mT EMF for 4months, 4hours/day.

Study of the Cardiovascular Effects of Exposure to Electromagnetic Field

Long-term exposure to cell phone EMF increases the liability for hypertension reflected on the ECG and cardiac weights which is accompanied by histopathological changes in the myocardium.

Electromagnetic pulses induce fluctuations in blood pressure in rats

Significant alterations in arterial blood pressure were observed in rats exposed to EMP exposure while heart rate was not altered, and the heart rates in sham- and EMP-exposed rats were not significantly changed.

Pathological changes associated with experimental 900-MHz electromagnetic wave exposure in rats

It is demonstrated that the use of GSM-like EMF at these intensities and duration can induce pathological lesions in the heart, liver, or kidney, but these are not EMF specific.

Provocation studies presented in this article demonstrate that the response to electrosmog is physiologic and not psychosomatic, and those who experience prolonged and severe EHS may develop psychologic problems as a consequence of their inability to work, their limited ability to travel in the authors' highly technologic environment, and the social stigma.

Magnetic field exposure and cardiovascular disease mortality among electric utility workers.

Examination of mortality from cardiovascular disease in relation to occupational magnetic field exposure among a cohort of 138,903 male electric utility workers from five US companies over the period 1950-1988 suggests a possible association between occupational magnetic fields and arrhythmia-related heart disease.

Mobile phone-induced myocardial oxidative stress: protection by a novel antioxidant agent caffeic acid phenethyl ester

The increased levels of MDA and NO and the decreased levels of myocardial SOD, CAT and GSH-Px activities demonstrate the role of oxidative mechanisms in 900 MHz mobile phone-induced heart tissue damage and CAPE, via its free radical scavenging and antioxidant properties, ameliorates oxidative heart injury.
